Have you ever noticed how small good deeds make you feel great? That’s the way to eco-up your bedroom.
Sweet dreams? naturally!
Natural materials feel good against the skin, making them the perfect fit for bedrooms. Cotton, linen and wool makes great bedding, providing comfort, warmth and high breathability. A bed made from solid wood, like this one, is hardwearing and will age well over time.
Love the light
LED lights last for around 20 years, which significantly cuts down on the number of times you’ll have to change the bulbs.
Not only that, you’ll be cutting down your electricity bill too, as LED uses 85% less energy than incandescent bulbs.
Hang up to air out
Most people don’t need to wash all their clothes after just one wear, but leaving them in a heap won’t help.
Hang trousers or tops up on hooks overnight and you won’t need to wash them so often, saving water and time spent ironing
Lock the heat in
We all like the feel of soft rugs under our feet, but did you know that putting down layers of rugs will stop heat escaping from a room? So turn up the rugs, and you could be turning down the thermostat.
Upcycle the old
There are lots of ways to include a bit of upcycling in your eco-friendly bedroom and it’s a great way to give old things new life. Like this throw and curtain panels made out of old shirts, bits of fabric and tea towels stitched together in a patchwork.
